When was the last time you sat on a park or garden bench for more than ten minutes?

Describe the occasion.

Well it was a bench at Carlisle train station where I was waiting for my connecting train to Newcasle to go and see my wife who was on a course for work at Newcastle and who I hadn’t seen for a couple of days.

Would you ever be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle?

I turn away every time. I hate the sight blood, especially my own.

Where’s your favorite place to take out-of-town guests?

Nowhere in particular, just somewhere nice where you can a have a nice cosy chat and catch up.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

That would be HMV so I could buy all of the dvds of series that I remember watching and would love to watch again.
